Actually, the scripts directory should be 2775. The wrappers that
should be 2755 are /usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman and
/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/*, but the cgi-bin/* wrappers are probably
OK if the web interface works.

At this point, run
as root until you get no errors. That should fix most permissions. Then
if Postfix still can't execute the /usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman
wrapper for no permission (with status 1), and you can't figure out
why, you might try asking on a Postfix group or list.
